Ashtavakra Gita Part 8

Sri Ashtavakra says: There is bondage, as long as mind desires something, grieves about something, sacrifices something, accepts something, is pleased about something or is angry about something.॥1॥

Liberation is when mind does not desire, does not grieve, does not sacrifice, does not accept, is not pleased or get angry.॥2॥

There is bondage when mind is attracted towards any of the visible things and liberation is when mind is not attracted to anything visible.॥3॥

There is bondage, as long as there is feeling of ‘I’ and ‘my’ and liberation is when there is no feeling of ‘I’ and ‘my’. Knowing this stay playful neither accepting nor sacrificing anything.॥4॥
